This is to announce the availability of py2pdf 0.5.

I wrote this mostly for providing embellished and (inden-
tation-)fool-proof versions of Python source code for ma-
gazine publishers, but quickly found out it would be use-
ful for teaching/presenting/reviewing/printing Python code, 
too.

A nice new feature in 0.5 is the ability of browsing more
intelligently through the code using PDF bookmarks that 
will point you directly to all class/method/function defi-
nitions, at least in Acrobat Reader.

You'll find py2pdf 0.5 (with lots of examples) either in 
the eGroups.com vault of the ReportLab users group in the 
same place (you'll need to become a group member first) or 
in my temporary home for stuff that has been lost after the 
Starship desaster:

Needless to say, I appreciate all feedback,

Regards,

Dinu
